i have been trying to get my teeth very white for a long time and trying to maintain the desired whiteness when i acheived it. i have been using bleaching strips but it was making my teeth too sensitive so i was in the market for a whitening toothpaste that wouldnt damage the enamel of my teeth when i came across oral-b 3D white. this toothpaste made my teeth feel cleaner and mouth fresher. For whitening purposes it did not get rid of alot of the stainage of my teeth but it was good for maintaining the white from bleaching. i also liked the way it was whitening in the spaces of my teeth and hard to reach places. overall i would recommend this to a friend as it definelty removes some stainage and keeps your mouth feeling fres and clean. also good for reaching hard places such as cracks and spaces in teeth.
Oral-B 3D White Brilliance Toothpaste
I fill in every sample request on line so that quite often it is like a mini Christmas when the postman arrives. I love getting freebies as it saves me a bit of money and also is something nice to open when it comes. I often buy the product after trying it so it is good advertising. I also like many others on here, write a review which brings it to people's attention to so it is worth the company's effort to do these samples.
I was quite excited to be given the chance to test this toothpaste out as I am always trying to whiten my teeth. I don't smoke or drink red wine but my teeth are not white whatever I do to try and whiten them. Because I have used so many different whitening products with little success I didn't hold much hope for this but I gave it the full two week trial.
I certainly wouldn't pay silly money to get my teeth whitened and don't have the obsession with white teeth that they seem to have in the USA but I really would like them a little whiter please.
I am not sure what the 3D is supposed to mean in a tooth paste as all toothpaste is 3D that is the nature of the stuff. They say that the 3D means that the paste will get the front, back and visible gaps between the teeth clean and white. Well I was rather hoping all toothpaste did that but if not then I am glad this one does. I really can't see it cleaning any better than other toothpastes re the in between and as for the whitening I have been reliably informed by my dentist that the only whitening by a trained clinician will actually work as legally they are not allowed to put enough whitening ingredient into products for use at home. I am not totally sure I want too much peroxide on my teeth anyway as it is not good for your teeth and mine are weak enough as they are now and don't need any more help in being awful.
My sample came without an outer cardboard box but I am certain the full sized product comes in an outer card packaging which I feel is wasteful and unnecessary but they all do it. They should all have the seal on the lid like some do where you need to use the outer lid to unscrew the inner seal and then it would save any chance of tampering and mean they don't need to cut down any more trees for the cardboard packaging.
The toothpaste comes in a plastic tube which I much prefer to the old metal ones and it had a screw top lid. The front is a blue design with a pink strip with 'Brilliance and what it claims to do. The rest of the tube is white. Apparently the flavour is radiant mint, not sure what that is but maybe the radiance is what makes the teeth white ad sparking!!
My tooth paste was a gentle mauve colour , sort of white with mauve stripes that belnded together. The smell as I squeezed it out was strongly mint, not spearmint but true peppermint. It was a paste like any other aprt from that and I used the same amount as I always do on my electric toothbrush, just a small pea sized bit on the cleaning head and it gave a really good amount of froth with which to clean my pegs.
The flavour was not amazingly minty but what I did find was that it cleaned quite well and my teeth felt mice and smooth afterwards. The minty cool feeling stayed quite a lot longer with this than with other toothpastes so I did quite like that.
I brush my teeth twice and sometimes three times a day if I am home at lunch time as I hate that plaque feeling on my teeth. I used this for two weeks and while it is hard to tell I can't say I really noticed any whitening effect after the two weeks. The paste did clean well, I'll give it credit for that and I did quite like the cool minty feeling that satyed in my mouth for a good half hour or so after cleaning. I love it when my mouth tastes fresh and clean, it also stops me being tempted to eat anything as toothpastes makes lots of things taste odd and I would also los e the freshly cleaned feel so it is great at stopping me snacking.
I have quite a lot of respect for Oral B as a brand as my dentist has recommended it to me a couple of times so I know he gains nothing from that. He also told me because my teeth are so poor and lacking in enamel as well as my gums receding that I should use a toothpaste with a high fluoride content which I do try to use but it is very expensive.
While we are on the subject of dentists and their advice mine also told me that I should NOT brush my teeth straight after my meal as I always thought, but I should wait about an hour after eating. Apparently because of the acid created to digest food the enamel at this time is softened so brushing actually could cause damage. I wonder if just rubbing the teeth with a good sensitive toothpaste at this time would help them absorb the good things in the toothpaste and then you could brush later. This also helps me stop snacking as once I have to wait an hour then clean, the effect of the clean feeling has to be maintained so I am not tempted to eat!
I am not really surprised at the lack of whitening but I do wonder why they all claim to be whitening when not one that I have used had helped at all. This was a good enough toothpaste that cleaned well and tasted fresh and cool for quite a while after using but it did not whiten my teeth noticeably.
This is not a cheap toothpaste and as I can get the same result from one costing a lot less I don't think I will be rushing to buy it again at the retail price of £3.49. There are plenty of others that do just as good a job for a lot less so thanks for the samples but this is one I would only buy if I saw it at similar prices to others that I buy, it is not worth the extra money.
three stars for the cleaning and taste
Thanks for reading. This review may be posted on other sites under my same username.
I don't keep to one particular toothpaste and will try any new ones on the market, or buy ones which I like the look of or ones on special offer. I have tried quite a few Oral B toothpastes previously but the one I have been using recently is the Oral B 3D White Brilliance Toothpaste. I bought two 75ml tubes for £4 from Asda which I think is a very good price as it is usually around £3.50 each. It is also currently on offer at Boots for 3 for 2 and at £3.49 this makes them £2.33 each which is still quite reasonable.
Although my teeth aren't particularly discoloured or stained I do like to look after them and give them the best chance of looking white and I had heard good reviews of this toothpaste. I use a pea sized amount which I find is sufficient for me and which is also recommended to use, and then clean my teeth in the normal way.
The box is quite different from a lot of other boxes and is in bold shades of blue, purple and pink. I think it looks quite striking and modern and appealed to me on the supermarket shelf as it stood out compared to the other brands.
The toothpaste is a minty taste which isn't too strong as some toothpastes can be but it does taste nice and fresh. I can still taste it for about half an hour after using it. The toothpaste itself is purple and lilac stripes and looks really different and it froths up in the normal way when you start to clean your teeth.
The product claims that you will notice a difference to the whiteness of your teeth within two weeks which I assume is the '3D cleaning' and I am pleased with the results and my teeth do feel very clean and smooth and do look brighter although I would not say particularly whiter. However I do drink a lot of coffee and the occasional red wine so perhaps if I didn't do this I would get more positive results. I will continue to use this toothpaste though and monitor the results.
You can currently get a free 15ml sample of this online at Offeroasis so you can try it without forking out for a big tube.
I will give this toothpaste five stars as although it doesn't whiten my teeth very much I can see some difference and everyone's teeth are different and will react in their own way to different products so some people may notice more of a difference. However I think this is definitely a good quality toothpaste which if you can get it on offer is well worth buying.
At £3.49 a tube this toothpaste is quite expensive, but in my quest for whiter teeth I thought i'd give it a try.
Looks. I cant deny that the appearance of the product is what helped sway me to buy this product over another, I love purple. It looked new and unique on the shelf. I was qute surprised though when first using to find that the toothpaste itself is also purple striped.
Taste. I hate a strong toothpaste, its one thing I went off when pregnant and have not got the taste back. I like a mild taste so usually that means one which doesn't do anything special. I like the sound of "radiant mint" but HOW can mint be radiant? It is a strange way to describe a flavour, but however I do like the taste. its mild enough of a kick to leave me feeling my breath is a bit fresher.
Feel. When brushing this feels just like any other toothpaste, you brush, it froths, you spit out the toothpaste. I did however find it left my teeth feeling a bit gritty after brushing. I did feel my teeth were thoroughly cleaned by brushing using oral b 3d.
So How can a toothpaste be 3d? Oral B claim this cleans front, back and visible surfaces between teeth. But I'm sure any normal cheaper toothpaste will clean these areas if you brush effectively.
Whiter teeth in 2 weeks? YES....maybe....slightly. I used this for 2 weeks and looked in the mirror closely at my teeth. They do look slighty whiter, but I do think my teeth look patchy. some parts seem to now look loads whiter, other patches look as they did before. How I will fix this I do not know!!!
Recommend? erm...no I don't think so. Although it does seem to work, my teeth feel clean and look a bit whiter, I don't like how they've left my teeth patchy. Also at £3.49 a tube it is expensive for something to only slightly work
I like to try to keep my teeth looking as white as possible but I do have some discoloration. I remember reading about Holly Willoughby endorsing this particular toothpaste quite heavily at one point, and though I am not usually taken in by these marketing ploys, where celebrities tell us that they use this stuff and they have perfect teeth/skin/hair etc., I do think that was actually the original reason I decided to buy this toothpaste. That, and the fact that Tesco were selling two 75ml tubes for £5 when the RRP was £3.40 for a tube. I bought my two tubes and off I went.
I have since used both of these tubes and now this toothpaste is back up to its original (very high) price and I have since reverted back to my usual Colgate paste.
This toothpaste is okay but I really cannot say, hand on heart that it made any noticeable difference to the colour of my teeth at all. When new, these tubes have a tiny little piece of silver foil on the top which has to be removed. I didn't realise this at first, and silly me was standing there for ages wondering what on earth was going on as I kept trying to squeeze the toothpaste out of the tube and nothing came out of the end!
The toothpaste has a mild and fresh minty taste and smell to it and it makes my teeth feel clean and makes my mouth tingle and feel quite fresh after I have used it. I decided to keep on trying to use it twice a day, every day, to see if it did actually claim to remove those stubborn red wine and tea stains and I don't think it has faired any better than my standard Colgate toothpaste really.
The box claims that I will see noticeably whiter teeth within two weeks of using this but I haven't. It's also supposed to remove up to 80% of surface stains - it hasn't. Maybe I'm not brushing my teeth correctly, and it's my fault, but I don't think so, somehow. The toothpaste froths slightly in the mouth and it's easily rinsed off afterwards when I gargle with water.
I am slightly disappointed in this product as I'd had high hopes. If Ms Willoughby does use this toothpaste then I think she also must be using something else in addition to get her teeth looking as white as they are, as this stuff certainly isn't doing it on its own.
I won't be buying more of this as it just doesn't live up to its claims and I can only give it two out of a possible five stars.
As I am one who loves the challenge of trying and testing out new products I was delighted to be given the opportunity of trying out two 15 ml tubes of Oral B White Brilliance; a toothpaste which claims to give visibly whiter teeth in two weeks in addition to removing up to 80% of surface stains. Whilst I have no desire for my gnashers to match those belonging to Simon Cowell, I was eager to try out the toothpaste in the hope that I could brighten mine by a shade or two.
I was interested to learn of the 3D technology that Oral B claim to use in this product, which apparently assists in cleaning the front, back and visible gaps between the teeth. I must admit that I was extremely sceptical, particularly as I have previously carried out considerable research on tooth whitening products where it seems that those for use at home are not particularly successful due to the limited amount of peroxide that is legally allowed.
The toothpaste is presented in a plastic tube identical to any other brand and as my two freebies were of a smaller size, mine sported a screw top lid. I was pleased to note that the product is described as "radiant mint", which gave me the impression that it would be strong, as I cannot bear toothpastes that are mild and subsequently fail to freshen my mouth after brushing. On squeezing the white paste from the tube with its consistency being identical to any other brand I've used, I was able to witness a purple coloured stripe.
I dispensed a pea sized amount to my toothbrush and began to brush against my teeth. Whilst the paste offered was considerably minty I didn't find it particularly favourable, as it offered a slight powdery texture and taste, which was slightly bitter. However, determined to put the product to the test and lighten my teeth and hopefully remove a few minor stains, I decided to proceed.
The paste slightly frothed similar to that of any other brand I've used and I continued to brush all of my teeth and thoroughly rinse my mouth after using. Despite not being a smoker or a heavy drinker of tea or coffee, I have a few small stains; one in particular, as I chipped a tooth some time ago and as a result, due to the lack of enamel, a slight discoloration tends to build up quickly.
I continued to use the tooth paste morning and night for the two weeks as per Oral B's claim, but I cannot admit to noticing any results, as the shade of my teeth remained identical to when I initially started using the paste. I cannot admit to being impressed with the lack of freshness that the toothpaste delivered following brushing, particularly as I favour those brands that offer a strong mint taste that lingers for a good while afterwards.
A point I feel appropriate to mention is that only recently I discovered that we should wait an hour after eating or drinking before brushing our teeth, particularly as the mouth becomes acidic following the consumption of food and drink and as a result, the enamel on our teeth will soften. Consequently, brushing too soon can damage the enamel. I've tried to follow this advice where I clean my teeth as soon as I get out of bed in the mornings and wait an hour after eating my breakfast. Whether there has improved my teeth is debatable, but at least I'm trying.
I cannot admit to being disappointed about my teeth not being visibly whiter, as I really was not expecting any results. In terms of using Oral B 3D Brilliance to clean my teeth, I felt assured that it was effective, particularly as Oral B is such a trusted brand and is recommended by many dentists. I would not normally rate a product following only two weeks use, but as Oral B boldly state that visible results are delivered in this timescale I feel it appropriate to do so. Unfortunately, this product gets the thumbs down from me and as a result, I will not be making a purchase and am unable to make a recommendation.
If you are interested in purchasing Oral B 3D White Brilliance I would advise that it is readily available in 75 ml tubes with a retail price of £3.49, which I consider to be considerably excessive.
I hope you found my review useful and thanks for reading.
I used to use Colgate whitening toothpaste all the time and swore it was the best toothpaste around. However, I tried Oral B 3D white as it was on special offer and was amazed by the results. Firstly my mouth felt fresher than it has before, a similar freshness that I would associate with using a mouthwash. My teeth felt smooth and silky and I literally sat running my tongue along them, both front and back. After continued continued use I genuinely saw a difference in my tooth colour it had lightened and after a couple of weeks I had a noticeably brighter smile.
So if you want a fresher feeling mouth, smoother cleaner feeling teeth, whiter brighter teeth with a clean feeling that lasts then oral b 3D white is the toothpaste for you! I love this toothpaste and have already convinced my mum and sister to change to it and hopefully this review will make you try to.
The first thing I tend to see when shopping for dental care is price. At the end of the day toothpaste is a simple essential that need not be expensive.
BUT if you are like me and you decided to try something new, then I would 100% recommend this. Although, it almost pains me to say this because the price is higher than I would ever pay normally, I absolutely love it!
The packaging is not the important part - but it is nice to see a pretty box when you are paying this much for a toothpaste.
The fact that I tried this almost sarcastically to try and prove someone wrong should speak to the fact that I am a harsh reviewer. But almost instantly I noticed the difference! My teeth were noticeably whiter and so smooth.
Sometimes toothpastes give you a sufficient clean but don't give you that deep clean that you really want. However, with this toothpaste you get that deep clean without any burning or irritation.
Although I would not say I quite have the Hollywood smile of an A list star, but it has - much to my surprise - filled in some of the gaps in my teeth. Yet, I would say that this is not a miracle paste so you shouldn't expect that a chain smoker's teeth will turn sparkling white.
The brighter and lighter appearance is also something that I saw instantly and has continued to improve over time. The fresh smell and mild taste is just perfect for me and lasts surprisingly long!
As much as I am not a sucker for advertisements, I have to agree with Holly - if your teeth are flawless you feel like smiling. :-)
Having been unable to buy my regular toothpaste because it was on offer and the supermarket had failed to order enough to keep up with demand, I looked round for an alternative (I could have waited until my next shopping trip but I was in a 'let's try something different' mood). Scanning the rows upon rows of toothpaste and becoming more and more indecisive, I saw the blue, white and pink Oral B box.
Firstly, it looked different to the other boxes of toothpaste - modern and quite classy. I use an Oral B Triumph toothbrush, so putting two and two together I thought Oral B toothpaste + Oral B toothbrush = Sparkly clean teeth - just what I want. What really sold it, though, was the claim of whitening in 3D and the sparkly star thing on the letter D which surely proves that my smile would dazzle. I couldn't wait to get home to try it - and I wasn't to be disappointed.
The toothpaste is white with a kind of blue hue to it, with little blue bits scattered throughout (I assume that these are to help polish the teeth). It has a distinct minty odour but is not overpowering. I was pleased that it tasted of fresh mint (the manufacturers call this 'radiant mint') and not spearmint as I find the latter does not freshen my mouth.
The oral B brush has a small head and I wondered if I would need to use more than one squeeze of toothpaste, but I need not have worried - one glob is quite ample to brush your teeth for the required 2 minutes that Oral B insist upon. It foams well but not excessively and the toothpaste does stay on the teeth (my old toothpaste tended to dissipate after about 30 seconds - but that's for another review). As for the 3D cleaning, I assume that it means that the paste cleans between your teeth and not just on the front and rear -I cannot confirm or deny this.
I must admit that my teeth do look a little whiter after using this toothpaste for almost a month. It makes your teeth shine and it does leave them feeling smooth - almost like coming straight from the dentist after a polish. I wouldn't say that it leaves them brilliant white, but nothing will unless you have them professionally whitened. My mouth feels clean and fresher after using the product but I always supplement this by zapping my mouth with mouthwash to get rid of all of the nasty things. I am not sure, however, if using this toothpaste alone would be sufficient for complete oral hygiene, and I will continue to supplement it with my regular products.
I am favourably impressed with this toothpaste. It's a little more expensive than my regular brand, but at the moment it's on offer at Boots for 2 for £5, so probably a good time to stock up (and get the Boots points).
Oral-B 3D White Brilliance Toothpaste
I recently started to use this toothpaste, as I found a tube on offer at a supermarket. The product is currently on sale for £3.49 at Boots the Chemists, (as well as being on three for 2 at ASDA, and two for five at Sainsburys, Tesco, and Waitrose).
The paste itself is a nice subtle minty flavour, and has a great purple stripe in it. The white element of the paste is a little more chalky than I would go for, but it isn't sickly or too grainy (this can put my teeth on edge). It foams well, although not profusely (it won't overflow your mouth like a comical washing machine sketch in a cartoon unless you use loads).
The paste claims to 'Give you visibly whiter teeth in 2 weeks!' through the process of removing surface stains. Having relatively recently been to the dentist for a bit of a polish I haven't noticed any massive changes in the whiteness of my teeth - but they haven't been getting more stained either, so this seems to be working out quite well. The toothpaste claims to have 1450ppm of sodium fluoride (this seems to be a relatively normal amount for similar toothpastes).
The paste also claims to help:
Prevent cavities - short term this hasn't been an issue - and I would personally put this down to brushing properly, and regularly also.
Prevent tartar - Again there doesn't seem to be a build up, and it seems to be keeping it at bay - so i'd rate it as effective with this also.
Refresh the mouth - it does make my moth fresher in the evening. However in the morning I like to use a more powerful tasting toothpaste to ensure that I get the most of the freshness, as I am going to be drinking coffee at work, and eating things throughout the day. For me this is a personal preference thing, and the mellow taste isn't a bad thing, just not to my liking when I have dragon morning breath.
I'd definitely recommend this toothpaste, as it is a hard working tool in keeping your teeth white, and your mouth fresh.
Though I don't really understand how my teeth can be made '3D white', I have found this product to work. I'm not convinced it whitens my teeth significiantly, but I definitely believe the formula creates a lovely, light-reflecting sparkling appearance. I recieved a sample of this toothpaste from an Oral B website sign up.
The oral B 3d white toothpaste comes in a clean but dynamic deep blue/purple box with white touches. The tube itself is white with the same dark coloured labelling. I find the packaging to be bold and attractive and definitely stands out next to the mass of mint, green and aqua blue shades of other toothpastes. The tube is easy to squeeze, and the end can be easily cut at the very end of it's shelf life to get out as much toothpaste as you can.
The toothpaste itself has a very pleasant (not too strong) mint taste and scent. I found it to be just right for my needs, not overpowering but not too weak so my mouth didn't feel refreshed. I was left tasting and feeling like my mouth was clean. This taste lasted quite a while - a sign of it's quality.
After a couple of days use I'd say the toothpaste has made my teeth appear very sparkly and a little whiter. I think the product uses light particles to create a more sparkling smile which in turn looks whiter. I am pleased with the results so far.
In terms of gum health etc I'm not sure if this product is the best - it is definitely more a vanity toothpaste. But having said that, it is one of the freshest, mintiest and nicest tasting vanity toothbrushes I've tried (avoid Arm and Hammer who's toothpaste tastes just as you'd expect baking soda to taste!)
A great little toothpaste for everyday use - creating a sparkling smile, fresh breath and a clean mouth.
